PFAS, Standards, Enforcement and Obligations
George Naslas, P.G., LSP, Vice President, Weston & Sampson
Massachusetts Enacted its MCLs in October 2020. Using a case study highlighting a non-traditional source of PFAS, we will illustrate obligations and the process that is required once PFAS becomes regulated. How MassDEP is regulating releases, detections in private wells and programs in place to provide help. Of interest to the audience is source of PFAS which was detected at a DPW yard in Eastern Massachusetts.
